This really depends on your budget and preference. The average is about $500 for a men's wedding ring, but platinum rings can be several thousand dollars while some tungsten selections start under $100.
Traditionally, the man in a couple picked out and purchased the lady's engagement ring and both wedding bands. That has changed in modern times with some brides selecting their fiancé's band as a gift and many couples ring shopping together. The best way to determine who's responsible for this is for the couple to discuss it and do what's comfortable for both of them.
For most American men, the left hand is home to a wedding band. However, your family's cultural traditions may indicate otherwise. For example, in the Eastern Orthodox church, wedding rings go on men's right hands.
A wedding ring should be snug but comfortable. A standard fit ring is flat along the inside edges like a pipe. Many men prefer the newer comfort fit, which is domed on the interior to slide more easily over the knuckle. Choose comfort fit for metals like tungsten that cannot be resized and for men who take their ring off frequently.
No! This is another one of those personal decisions that reflects the two of you as a couple. Matching wedding band sets can be a way of showcasing your unity, but differing rings make a statement about your individuality. Remember that your wedding rings are only a symbol - and only you can decide how they will tell your unique love story.
